Colts have offered Manning more money than Brady

Jim Irsay and P. Manning Posted by Josh Katzowitz

Colts owner Jim Irsay hastily assembled a news conference today, and he had something very interesting to say, revealing that he already had made QB Peyton Manning a better offer than the four-year, $72 million deal that Patriots QB Tom Brady signed last September. 

He wouldn’t give the exact numbers, but Irsay said he remains confident the club and Manning will come to an agreement on a long-term deal for Manning. He also claimed he’d be willing to give the soon-to-be 35-year-old Manning a five or six-year deal.

For now, the Colts plan to place the franchise tag on Manning – which would pay him a cool $23.12 million for the 2011 season. But it sounds like Manning, if he wants, will be the highest-paid player in the game.

I think Irsay is taking pills again,too much money for a slow running old QB with a suspect line and an aging #1 receiver that is unhappy with his contract,money could be better spent in other ways,Manning could take less if he were a true team man....hell he just make another TV ad Frownor two to make up the difference.

Manning isn't going to be playing in five or six years. Favre barely made it through his fortieth year, and he's tougher than Manning. I also don't want to start the Brady-Manning debate, but I know it's coming anyway, so I'll just go ahead and say that I don't think Manning deserves more money than Brady, given that Brady usually beats Manning when they play each other, has more titles, blah blah blah, you've all already heard all this anyway.
